Cincinnati-area man charged with having sex with female minor

CINCINNATI (AP) – A 25-year-old southwest Ohio man has been charged with having sex with an underage girl after police say a taxi driver reported her unpaid fare.

Police say William Simpson hired a taxi Sunday to bring a 15-year-old girl to his home in the Cincinnati suburb of Silverton, but then refused to pay the driver.

A police affidavit states an officer who went to investigate found Simpson and the girl. Police say both said they had consensual sex.

Police say they met through an online dating site and Simpson said she claimed to be older than she was.

Simpson was charged with unlawful sexual contact with a minor under the age of 16.

Attorney Stephan Madden said Simpson pleaded not guilty Monday and the case was referred to a grand jury.
